VNIPIpromtechnologii, JSC (the Engineering Center of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. / Mining Division of ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation) will conduct a feasibility study (FS) for the permanent exploration conditions at the Svetlovskoye ore field, Irkutsk Region. The Engineering Center won the bid for the development of documentation, which was announced by Vysochaishy, PJSC (GV Gold), one of the largest gold producers in Russia. The Engineering Center is expected to conduct a preliminary resource assessment for the Svetlovskoye ore field and specifically develop the feasibility study for the permanent exploration conditions as part of their work.
